भस्म को ललाट पे लगाया करते हैं, गले में मूँड माला,
साँपों का डेरा सजाया करते है, हम भक्त है उनके जो ताण्डव मचाया करते है ।#mahakalkadiwana

My first view of YANA CAVES

#YANA IS A VILLAGE LOCATED IN FORESTS OF THE KUMTA, UTTTARA KANNADA DISTRICT OF #KARNATAKA, WHICH IS KNOWN FOR THE UNUSUAL #KARSTROCK FORMATIONS (#LIMESTONE). A #SHIVALINGA IS WORSHIPPED INSIDE THE #YANACAVES (NATURALLY FORMED).

HIKE TO YANACAVES :
-DURATION: 1.5 HRS
-TREK/HIKE LEVEL : EASY
-CARRY WATER
-WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES (NEED TO CROSS STREAMS, ROCKY TERRAIN & AROUND 300 STEPS EACH WAY)
-CARRY AN UMBRELLA IF UR HIKING IN MONSOON ( I ONLY CARRIED A BAG TO COVER MY CAMERA, AS I LOVE RAINS & DINT MIND FEW DRIZZLES)
-NEED TO WALK BAREFOOT INSIDE THE CAVE AROUND/ABOVE THE TEMPLE (20MINS)
-HUNDREDS OF BEEHIVES & BATS BUT HARMLESS
-VERY WELL MAINTED BY #KFD (KARNATAKA FOREST DEPARTMENT)

The REAL meaning of SHIVALINGAM:
The shape of the #lingam suggests the shape of an egg. #Shivalingam is depicted in this way to signify Shiva as the root cause of the entire creation. Thus, he is the seed or the embryo from which the entire universe issued forth. We can also link this to the 'Big Bang' theory that suggests how all the universe emerged from the banging of the first matter which was in egg shape.

The name Lingam is also suggestive of two cosmic concepts namely 'Liya' and 'Gamya' meaning source and the destination respectively suggesting that it is from #Shiva that the universe emerges and it is in him that it merges back after dissolution. Thus, #ShivaLinga suggests the ultimate Godhead that plays the role of creation, sustenance and destruction all in one.

This concept of Lingam representing the #Hindu Trnity of gods is further illustrated by the fact that the Lingam itself has three parts. The base, the pedestal and the pillar. It is said the base symbolizes LordBrahma, the pedestal symbolizes LordVishnu and the pillar symbolizes #LordShiva. Thus, Lingam is actually the image of all the three gods in one

There are three forms of worshipping the divinity namely Rupa (form), Arupa (formless) and Ruparupa (form as well as formless). #Shivling is the Ruparupa meaning that at once it is form as well as formless. With the worship of Lingam, people attain the illumination and perceive the formless aspect of Shiva gradually.

My Beloved God #ShivaShiv 🕉️🌿🌹♥️🌻🔱
"The divine Shiva does not need to be cleansed, one who pours water on the Shivling cleanses his own #soul. #ShivaLinga isn’t just a stone or a statue, which acts as a medium of connecting to #Mahadev, but is also an Environment purifying device which cleanses the aura of the whole place and absorbs all negativity. It acts like an arc reactor, which disperses the evil energy and converts it into more positivity. But this conversion of energies is an exothermic reaction; i.e. it produces heat while the conversion takes place. And needs to cool down to work efficiently, just like an arc reactor. So, devotees pour water to cool the Shivling, and in turn wash away all the heat and help #purify the environment even more. For instance, if your head is hot you cannot think and make a proper decision but a cool and calm head can!! Another explanation for pouring of water comes from the ancient tale of Samudra Manthan, when Devatas & Asuras were churning the ocean. Finally ‘Halahal’ came out, the strongest poison which was capable of killing both Asuras and Devatas alike. To save the world from damnation, Lord Shiva drank the poison and held it in his throat. This poison produced so much heat that the Devtas performed Ganga Abhishek on Shiva and poured holy waters of #Ganga in massive amounts on Shiva. Thus pouring of water on Shivling keeps it cool.

While you pour water on the Shivling, you also chant #OmNamahShivaya which involves you in the prayer mentally as well as physically & consequently uplifts your mind & body together and purifies thinking.
Lord Shiva, the #destroyer of evil, the #forgiver and the Greatest, is the most Gracious God.
As vast as his tales of heroism are, so are the mysteries behind them.
Shiva Puja is essential for achieving the path to Moksha"

Yeah soul is real. Souls Are Functional Immediately After the Death of the Body. Basically soul is the principle of life, feeling, thought, and action in humans, regarded as a distinct entity separate from the body.
